David Batchelor

David Batchelor’s (born 1955) work has been shown in many UK and international galleries and group exhibitions. He had a major solo exhibition at the Ikon Gallery in Birmingham in 2004. As well as exhibiting in conventional art settings, he has sought to present site-specific installations in non-art spaces such as a theatre (Sadler’s Wells), a shop (Habitat), a hospital (Bart’s), a government building (the Treasury) and a university (Warwick). These new structures, presented within the gritty, urban arena of an Underground station, make a further link with the city environs that Batchelor explores and celebrates in his work.
